We want to be the sharpest knives in the drawer! Foodland has a promotion on: for every $10 spent, you receive a sticker. Stickers are redeemed for assorted sizes of professional kitchen knives. Colborne Legion would greatly appreciate your donation of those stickers to replenish and/or augment our food prep knives. Please leave them with the bar steward in the clubroom or bring them to out twice-monthly dinners and turn them in at the door. The offer runs through to Apr. 25.

Our new Colborne Legion Facebook (colborne legion) page is proving popular with folks. Lots are liking us! It’s a great way to stay in touch with current events and people at our active community centre. Christina Singleton, our young volunteer “content contributor”, and others are posting to the Facebook site. Follow us! We’ll follow you! And don’t forget: we post all our news on this website too: www.colbornelegion.org .
If you host it, they will come. Northumberland Hills Public School (NHPS) proved it so. We didn’t know of anyone would actually show up, things having been difficult for extra curricular activities in public schools these days. But the annual Colborne Legion Br. 187 public speaking contest was scheduled anyway for elementary through Grade 10 students on Saturday, March 17. Just after noon, 12 candidates arrived and registered — all for the Grade 4-6 class of competition and all from NHPS in Castleton!
The winners were: first, Alyce McLean for her speech on “Wheelchair Rugby”; second, Ellie Norton for “Deforestation”, and third Ewan Morreau for “William Wallace: Scottish Hero.” Alyvce McLean advanced to the Zone level of Legion competition Sunday, March 24, at Brighton Legion.
